Encroachments continue to be made upon the free |

will not poon be untlrcly suprraodcd by the safety fund 1
bunking system. 1 do not design to Intimate that a bet- i
tf r banking system than any of thoae In existence could
not be devised. or that the time will never oome when a |
positive and real mutual protection banking system will !
exist in America. A bill pasted the House to-dsy sub*

or secured to be paid In, which in no oaae (it is provided)

held by the Comptroller an security for the redemption 1
of circulating notea at their actual value, aa estimated
by the Comptroller, without any reduction for the debt*
of any auch Individual banker or aasoclatlon.
A bill baa passed the Legislature to pi o vide for the
election of a Lieut. Governor at the enauing election, to
be held in November nest; tb 1 officer so elected, will
hold hia office until, and Including the 31st of December,
IblS. The following la the vot? upon the kill as it pass
d the Senate this morning:

Hanford, Taloott, Townsend, Van Schoonhoven,
Wheeler?17.
Nays?Messrs. Barlow. Crook, Denniston, Lester, J. B.
Smith, h Smith, Williams?8.
'l'be radicals (democrats.) avowed their opposition to
the bill upon Constitutional grounds; they denied the
Constitutional power of the Senate to provide for an
emergency which it seems was not contemplated by the
Constitutor; the Constitution of the United States says
that " the Congress may by law provide for the case of j
removal, death, resignation or inability, both of the >
President ai.d Vice ('resident, declaring what officer ,
shall then act an President," &io ; but I belmre the Legis- i
lature has not been entrusted with similar powers. !
Now that this bill has passed, it will be the duty of the ,
Secretary of State to notify the sheriff, clerk, or coun- j
ty Judge, of each of the counties of this state, j
that a Lieutenant Governor is to be chosen ; immediately
after the reception of this notioe, the Sheriff Clenk,
or County Judge, to whom it Is addressed, will oause it
to be published in each of the newspapers published iu
his county, once a week, until the time of holding the
election. The democratic candidate for Lieutenant
Governor will be nominated at the State Convention, to
be held at Syraouae on the 39th Instant. It is stated
here that the delegation In that convention will be aa
follows : ? Sixty-two delegates in ftivor of the re-nomlnatlon
of Mr. Klagg ; fifty-six delegates in favor of " new
men," the remaining ten seats will ba contested. This
situation of the delegation waa declared to be aoourate
by a prominent radical democrat; it may be oorrcot; in
any case, I presume the opinion may be safely entertained
that the proceedings ol the oonventlou will be particularly
interesting to the people of this State.
A very important general bill for the organization of
companies to construct railroads, passed the Senate today?a^cs
17. noes S. This bill contains the ''Oriskany,"

it appears that daring the la8t fiscal year then has bmn
a turplaw of revenue from the public works beyond that

since Mr.Cornwell proponed to devote the entire surplus,

Dundkk, Yates Co., N. Y., Sept. i Jd. 1847.
The Salt Workt?Interesting Intelligence.
I drop you a line once in a while when I meet with any
thing that I suppose will be of hiterest to your readers.
On my return from the Sanlt de St. Marie, a few days
since, I stopped at the pleasant village of Geneva to see
some of my old friends from the city, and while there
heard much said about the Dundee salt works?which,
together with the frequent notioes concerning them that
have of late appeared in the papers, induced me to visit
this plaoe. A pleasant sail of a couple of hours on the
Seneca, on board the steamboat Richard Stevens, brought
me to the Dundee landing, whence a mail carriage plies
to and from the village?three miles.
Dundue is a busy, thriving little village, situated very
pleasantly, contains about 800 or 1000 inhabitants, has
1 four churches, ton or twelve stores, two taverns, numerous
mechanics' shop* and several saw mills, grist mills,
fco. Big Stream, which runs .through the south-west
part of the village, furnishes abundant water power for
the numerous mills, and its banks from here to Seneca
Lake, geologioally considered, are singular and inter.
esting.
I visited the salt work* yesterday. In a bend of the
stream, at the west end of the village, I found a number
oi laborers, some employed in sinking a shaft for salt water
and others in erecting the necessary bnildiog, and
masoning in blocks ot large oauldron kettles, such a> are
used at Syracuse and Moutezumn., for boiling salt The
shaft that is now being sunk is 10)? inches in circumfer
ence, and has descended 14.1 foet. Several large sheets of
salt water have already been struck, which, according to
a comparative aualysis by an Albany chemist. Is remarkably
free from ferrum and magnesia. The course from
the bore to the it.reain, and the ground around tbe works
where the water had overflowed from the bore aud evaporated,
was quite white In mauy places, with ssline par
ucies. me oena in tne stream wnrre ma boring m now
going on, wm formerly a " deer lick," and the old salt
spring where the Indiana used to boll their Halt, Is (till
visible.
Some four or five years ago the first efforts at obtaining
salt water in any considerable quantity, were made, and
a three Inch shaft was sunk 107 feet. Plenty of strong
salt water?brine, 1 might almost call it?was obtained ;
a small block of kettlcsset up and considerable salt manufactured
for a while, until some repairs becoming necessary
a disagreement took place among the several owners.
and nothing more was done until a short time since.
Some salt manufactured from the water was reoently
analysed by neighbor Chilton, and. according to his cerQcate,
is superior in strength to Turk's Island or Liverpool.
That block of kettles was merely set as a matter of
experiment, and the owners having found it successful,
retused large offers for the premises ; of course. on so
small a soale the works ceuld not be made profitable as
they were, and a further outlay became necessary Kaeh
owner was afraid if he advanced means to g* on.that the
others would reap a proportionate benefit, and consequently
the works remained unimproved until reoently,
and the property, ahich was valued at $10,000, wae a
lax burthen, Instead of a benefit to the owners By
shrewd management for a long period, the present owners
sucoeedei in enticing " the dogs from the manger" by
a small slioe, and have concentrated the title. As the
springs are on what is ealled the Oore, between the old
and new pre-emption lines from the Pennsylvania boundary
to Lake Ontario, the salt that may be manufactured
will be free from 8taM duties.owing to the p. uharity of
the original patent granted by the ?tate for the land
aomprii-lng the gore?there being no reservations iu it
The volume of salt water now is sufficient to supply six
blocks of lorty kettles each, day and night. The gas
forces the water to overflow,and at times ejects it to the
height of ten or fifteen feet above the orifice. By properly
constructed apparatus, as at the Kenhawa works, I
doubt not the whole process of boiling can be performed
by means of the gas alone. It seems to me that these
works must soon become exceedingly valuable, and they I
are already attracting the attention of numerous persons <
well acquainted with the suit manufacture.

We left Alb^y on the morning of the 21st, at halfpast

riuiue few reToluliuOfl and shot us beyond the gate, each
pasaenger turned to examine whom ohanoe had made the i
seat-fellow of hit journey. The ladies settled themselre"
'n their sllka uttd muslins, and tried to look as interesting
as their faded cheeks and puffed eyed would permit
and a thorough ovrrture of short oeughs and ahems
proclaimed a general understanding that we were fairly
off at laflt. For the space of aereral minutes alienee 1
r?lgned upon my seat, during which my companion and
myself skilfully observed each other at brief Interval,
with all the profound cautiousness of two veteran grl- !

" Fine n.orning, mt,v said my companion, with an intro- J

panseoger on the same seat with the Buffalonian. "General

very like a sneer, u 1 should Just like to know what

head for a moment, he contented himself with saying,
determinated, ' Well, 1 dout care forallthat; thatdout

In conversation of this description we whiled away
the interim between the stopping places, at eaoh of
which those of us who talked p<4itics the strongest,
made it a rule to stop and " licker." The line of country
through which we passed this afternoon, was of the
uiost beautiful description. It waa the lovely valley of
the Mohawk, the features of which have times innumerable
been glowingly described. 1 will not attempt to
elaborately perform the same task, but will de it briefly
in an anecdote that was gravely related for fact, by the
huge Buffalonian. An Indian presented himself at the
gate of heaven for admittance. "Where do jou come
Irom ?" inquired the gate-keeper; " Krom the valley of
the .Mohawk,7'replied the savage?" Then go back, you
d?d foot," answered the gate-keeper: " there's no belter
place than that here!'' saying which ha slaininea the
door in his faoe. The valley of tbe Mohawk has slightly
altered, however, sinoe tbe time of the tradition; and
Ik the buffalo, aud the reil deer, tt presents a chart of
vexed aud waving Add*, with whistling railroads, a
crammed oanal, aud a coach road all runuiug parallel,
with the sparkling river in their midst, aud all within
the longitude or less than half a mile. Of these tour
method* of conveyance, 1 have the least to day in favor
of the railroad, wiuch, though charging the exorbitant
rate of four cents the mile, twice tbu rale of our city
omnibuses, drags you over a rotten, shankly and dllapi
dated track, tuat momentarily endangers your life or
your bone*. It in disgraceful to all the companies concerned
in it. aud the only thing that renders it* outrageous
condition tolerable for a moment, is the hope that
its extortions and the rude Insolence of its pampered
cMj><?yii?, will precipitate a rival route, or iuotuer words
accelerate the progress of the Krle Railroad. Tins will al
once reduce the fare to a reasonable standard,and enforce
upon the altach*t of the present monopoly, the lessou
that respect aud attention arc due to a liberal patronage.
We dined atUtica and supped at Syracuse; shortly afier
stopping at which latter place, we bound up our beads
like luuian saoriliees, and disposed ourselves to sleep,
wakitig up the next morning in Buffalo. Alter breakfast,
1 paid a visit to the wharf, to inquire after a steamer
to convey me up the lakes. As a preliminary to this inquiry,
aud that I might proceed correctly in the business,
I called first at the house of Messrs. Tiffany und
Lock wood, extensive forwarding and commission merchants,
No. 'J Sideway Uluck, who act as agents for several
of the best boats on the lakes, aud there was gratified
to learn that the splendid new steamer Sultana, Captain
Appleby, was up for Chicago, via the Mai-kiuaw Straits,
tbat very afternoon, and that, if I were disposed to go,
1 could never tlnd a better opportunity. A brief examination
of the boat proved all that had been said 111
her favor, and I booked myself for the trip iu as neat
and elegant a state room as can be found atloat, either
upon salt water or upon fresh. 1 then devoted myself
to such brief examination of the city as my t!iuo allot tied;
b it 1 am free to oontess that 1 cannot lurnlah an
*<U'<iuaU i4?a of Its character and ita resources, fcverything
looked like business, and every place waa alivo
with industry. Th? canal was crammed with heavily
laden baats, crowding in aud out; men rushed up and
down the streets, and shot across the bridges
with bandies in their arms and on their shoulders;
negro* were tumbling huge packing boxes into and out
of the store*. The " Vo, heave O !" of the lane sailors
marked the localities where were discharging stuffed
sloops and schooners of pork, and Hour and Indian corn,
or taking in merchandise brought by (lie canal; while
Intermixing through the whole of the various throngs
were seen little squads of Uerman emigrants, trotting
about the streets, or winding between the piled up merohau'li/.M
upou the dock, to search out boats to convey
them t? the different points of the Ureal West. Indus|
try seemed to be enjoying a special jubilee, and every
Idler looked as if he were au outcast from the holiday.

" Yes," said be, ' it does; but after a white. New Vork

a right to be proud."
I met at th? Mansion House Lieutenant. Gaines, of
Colonel Burnett'* New Vork regiment. He whs Dent to
this place just previous to the battle of Cerro Gordo, to
recruit tile deUcieuceh in the regiment. ' do uo1 k?ow
wbat to nay ot this. New York city sent but a single
regiment to the beat of war, and nh? should bavu kept
it lull The cause may be explained, perhaps, by the
competition of tbe recruiting officers for me regnlar >ervice,
who oiler a bounty of or $30. cash uowu, au
advantage of wbicb volunteers are deprived. Lieutenant
Gaines complains that ou tbis acoouiiL he cannot enlist
a single man; and wbat renders bis situation the mora
discouraging, a regular reoruiting officer haa eet down
almost next door to lilm, and covered bis window shutters
witb placards proclaiming cash down for volunteers."
liaines complains that the regular baa no rlgbt
to use tho word ' volunteers'' in this war, und threatens
to report him to the war department. How tbe feud
will end, I oaunot venture to say.
Just as we were embarking thla evening at 7 o'clock,
the startling news arrived or the death of Hilas Wright
It bad a stunning effect upon all who heard it, and partloularly
upon those of ux who had built hopes upon his
life. We were prepared to start, but Captain Appleby
detalued his boat uutii the news could be con tinned.
Exchanges were at once made with tbe telegraph, and
at halt-past nine, the calamity being placed beyond
doubt, we call off, and set out to distr bute the awful
tidings throughout a region which was fust adopting the
dead man's name as their watenword of liberty for the
great crisis of IH48.
" This Is mournful news,'' said i to my Chicago friend,
who sat doli-fully by the table, with his chiu resting ou
hi* hands. " .Mournful, indeed," said be. " Three hours
